Day 10: Mulan Disney Inspired Princess Ribbon Sculpture Pattern

August 29, 2012

Welcome to day TEN of the Disney Inspired Ribbon Sculpture Patterns. During each day of the week (except weekends) I'll be posting the pattern of a Disney Inspired Princess Ribbon. Fun, huh?! Today we're doing Mulan. Get all the tutorials for all the Disney Princesses as I post them in the link below: Materials: Hot glue no-fray spray (or hair spray) Start out with these lengths of ribbon:
Mulan is one of my favorites. I love her angled sleeves and hair. She certainly most one of the unique.

Hot glue
no-fray spray (or hair spray)
Flesh colored: 2¼ ", two pieces of  ¾”
Black: 2", two pieces of 1" BLACK RIBBON SHOULD BE ONLY ¼ " WIDE
Yellow: 1"
Purple: 1½ ", 2"
Pink: 2½ ", 3½ ", four pieces of 4"
Red: 2", two pieces of 1½ "

Step 1: Roll flesh colored 3" piece of ribbon into a circle and glue. This will be your head.

Step 2: Take a black 2" piece and wrap around forehead with ends at back of head. Leave a little extra space at sides of head.
Step 3: Take your 1" pieces of black ribbon and roll in a circle. Glue ends together.

Step 4: Put one circle in the other. Glue in place.

 Step 5: Take your 1" of yellow and fold in half. Glue together.

Step 6: Glue that yellow piece at top of head.

Step 7: Place the ball you made in step 4 on top of yellow ribbon. Glue in place.

 Step 8: Take your 1½ " piece of purple ribbon and wrap around the neck so that the ends cross in the front. Glue in place.

Step 9: Take your 2½ " piece of pink ribbon and wrap around the purple ribbon in the same manner. Leave a little bit of the purple ribbon showing at the top.

 Step 10: Take your 3½ " piece of pink ribbon and glue to back on top of pink ribbon in previous step. These will be your sleeves.

Step 11: Turn over. Fold down one pink sleeve at an angle. Glue in place.

Step 12: Cut sleeve at an angle. Spray with no fray spray. Repeat steps 11 through 12 with other sleeve.

Step 13:  Take your two pieces of ¾” flesh color and cut the ends in a rounded shape. Spray with no fray spray. These will be your hands.

Step 14: Glue hands to back of sleeves.

Step 15: Take your 2" piece of red ribbon and cut the top edge off and discard. Spray with no fray spray.

Step 16: Glue your red piece on top of your 2" purple piece.

 Step 17: Glue purple and red band to front of bodice.

 Step 18: Wrap around to back and glue ends together.

 Step 19: Take your four pieces of 4" pink ribbon and glue ends together.

Step 20: Glue the ends of those pieces inside the purple and red band.

Step 21: Glue your two pieces of 1½ " red ribbon on top of the skirt and under the purple and red band.

 Step 22: Cut the two pieces of ribbon at a slant. Spray with no fray spray. Done!
